Menez suffers gruesome ear injury in Bordeaux debut

The 29-year-old had a chunk taken out of his right ear after Lorient midfielder Didier Ndong stood on his head during a friendly on Wednesday.

JEREMY MENEZ SUFFERED a gruesome ear injury during his debut for Bordeaux.

The 29-year-old only joined the French club from AC Milan two days ago and made his first appearance for the club in a friendly against Lorient on Wednesday.

And in the second half of the game, Lorient midfielder Didier Ndong stood on Menez’s head, which took a chunk out of the Frenchman’s right ear.

In a statement released on Wednesday evening, Bordeaux confirmed that Menez may require surgery in order to heal his ear.

“Jeremy Menez had an ear cut off during the encounter against Lorient, which led to his premature exit in the 77th minute,” the club announced.

“The medical staff will take a surgical opinion on whether to operate on the new Bordeaux player.”
